Safe boating when you're older
Even the most experienced boaters can face unexpected risks on the water. You may have skippered a boat more times than you can count, but as you age, you become more vulnerable to safety incidents due to changes in health and mobility, including the ability to quickly react to sudden hazards.
People aged 70+ are over-represented in boating trauma, accounting for about in 1 in 5 fatalities. It's important to take extra care so you can keep enjoying your time on the water safely.
